The inability to listen, etc., has gotten pretty bad, AND the lack of any concern about the others around you . But there have always been noise makers, I just mentioned in the 5/10/80 show, firecrackers in "Comes a Time" , talk a bout dumbshits ! The Dead's reputation as a party band didn't help them . And the more booze available, the nosier it got .
There is another category, one might call, the attentive, but insensitive fan . Just because Garcia says "Stella Blue" in the song, why do you have to go "AUGHWOOO" , and thus spoil the beauty of that moment . Why do you have to clap in the middle of "Morning Dew" ? It's not a cheery song ! But I guess they saw on TV this is what you do a a big Rock show ...
I think it all comes down to being aware of the music . As The Byrds/Pete Seeger /Ecclesiastes say, there is a time to everything . A time to scream, shout and yell, and a time to shut up and listen .
